For 15 years, PlatteForum has sparked and empowered positive change for youth, artists and the community through the transformative power of the arts. PlatteForum pairs professional contemporary artists with our ArtLab high school interns to improve academic performance, increase graduation rates, prepare for postsecondary success and teach them how to create positive social change in their communities.
We’re celebrating our 15th anniversary and to honor the tremendous impact PlatteForum has had over the last 15 years, our long-time partner, Land Title Guarantee Company, has put forward a $15,000 challenge grant. Help PlatteForum raise $30,000 by December 31 and Land Title will write a $15,000 check to PlatteForum!
Your generosity makes possible results like these:
Over the last 15 years, our high school interns achieved a 97% high-school graduation rate, far exceeding Denver, state and national averages.
15 high-school interns are currently participating in our ArtLab program and the planned ArtLab expansion will add an additional 15 ArtLab interns next fiscal year.
PlatteForum provides paid positions to 15 contemporary artists and free exhibition space for another 35.
More than 4,015 individuals benefit from PlatteForum each year through our workshops, exhibitions, events and other progressive programming.
PlatteForum is only able to achieve these results through the contributions of those who understand the immediate and long-term benefits of programs like ours. Your contribution will bring us one step closer to raising $30,000 by December 31 and releasing Land Title’s $15,000 challenge grant.
Thank you for supporting PlatteForum’s 15 years of artistic excellence and service to the community. Your continued commitment to the arts and under-resourced youth will make the next 15 years even more productive and more innovative than the first 15!
